Read on for more info about SNAILKING and their new album Storm…
Two years following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP Samsara, Swedish doom/sludge trio SNAILKING are back with their first full-length album Storm, once again released by Belgian independent label ConSouling Sounds.
Clocking in at 53 minutes, Storm is a natural step forward from the colossal and muddy rumble of Samsara, displaying heavy, fuzzy guitar riffs that are at once depressing and crushing, coupled with hypnotic, droning beats worthy of Yob’s best jam-outs, thunderous bass lines and some grieving roars. There’s an intense sense of hopelessness and misery enveloping all the songs as if SNAILKING have suffered the worst adversities in the last years.
Heavy and organic, gloomy yet oppressive, Storm is a superbly composed, well-executed blend of slow-doom and gritty sludge that will surely impress fans of Yob, Ufomammut, Electric Wizard, Reverend Bizarre and Pallbearer.
